One of the first lessons that God teaches us in the bible was the responsibility that comes with knowledge…
Genesis 3:22-24 (NKJV)
22 Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— 23 therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. 24 So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.
God has blessed us to be created in His image. One aspect of that is the ability to acquire knowledge. He even told us that in the last days there would be a great increase in knowledge…
Daniel 12:4 (NKJV)
4 “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”
God has allowed us to have incredible advances in science, technology, medicine etc. Unfortunately much of the knowledge that we have acquired has convinced many that the one source of all knowledge, Yahweh, The Lord God of Israel from Everlasting to Everlasting does not exist. They have used that knowledge to decide for themselves that Yeshua, Christ Jesus was not God’s Son.
Even on a personal level, there are things we want to know. Always ask yourself are you ready for the knowledge that you are seeking.
“What have people been saying about me?”
“What are they whispering about?”
“Is my spouse being unfaithful?”
“Who are my real parents?”
“How many threats are there really to our national security on a daily basis?”
When you find out someone needs help and you have the means are you willing to help them?
When you find out what’s wrong with someone are you willing to be there for them?
When you begin to realize what God’s purpose is for your life, are you ready for the responsibility that come with it? Learning God’s word comes with great responsibility.
If you already knew the day you would die, would you spend your entire life obsessing over it?
“Have you ever gained some knowledge or information and then realized after you got it, “I’m not ready for this!”???
Approach all knowledge prayerfully and through the lens of God’s word. God doesn’t intend for us to have knowledge until we are spiritually mature enough to handle it.
1 Corinthians 3:2 (NKJV)
2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able;
